If the motherboard required wasn't a couple hundred dollars more expensive, maybe. But cheaper threadripper is great for people who need lots of PCIe lanes.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

The 2700x is the same price and is faster on both the single and multicore side.  Not only that, but TR/x399 boards all cost over 200.  I could get a decent x470+2700x for less than that.

Decent price.. Only viable if you need quad channel memory and extra PCIe lanes.. Also doesn't come with cooler.. I would just wait.. I wouldn't buy one over the 2700X, but I have no use for it, either..

The processor might be cheap, but look at TR 4 motherboards. Those are not cheap.

This is a bizarre thread, that is a fantastic price for a workstation PC that utilizes the extra RAM/cores/threads/pci-e lanes. I really don't see how you can compare it to a Ryzen 7 which is designed for a regular use (lets face it, games and web-browsing) as the 7 will stomp all over it in that arena.

Yeah it just depends on your usage. Obviously if you are talking about more than 8 cores, there is no competition. But people are comparing the 1900X (8C/16T) to the Ryzen 2700X (8C/16T), which is a good question to ask.

 

Ryzen 2700X will have higher Boost clocks, so will beat it in productivity tasks as well.

 

How many people really need the extra RAM / PCI-e lanes / ECC memmory? Most people who get threadripper would be for high end video editing, CAD work, rendering, etc. etc. So apart from more cores, I don't know why you would need those extra features.

 

Same at my office: we have these expensive workstations with XEONS and Quadro's in them for CAD use. But in my opinion it would be better and cheaper to just get a consumer CPU and a GTX 1080Ti or something.. If they didnt cost $5000 each, you'd be able to upgrade more frequently, and everyone would have a faster workstation because of it.

I work at an aerospace engineering company and the reason they use xeons is because the cost of the setup is many multiples less than the lost time over the course that it takes to depreciate the asset
